Swear words and a cross were spray-painted over graffiti of Vladimir Putin on one of the apartment buildings in Sverdlova Street and a wall of a disused outdoor cinema theatre in Kerch, reports KERCH.FM. One of the portraits was so badly damaged that the local authorities simply decided to paint it over.

It was reported earlier that Putin portraits that have appeared in large numbers all over Crimea are being damaged as part of the ‘Putin, get out!’ drive.
